The Sustainable Stock Exchanges Initiative
"Stock exchanges are uniquely positioned at the intersection between investors, companies, and regulators. As such they can play a key role in promoting responsible investment and sustainable development."
Mr. James Zhan
Director, Division on Investment and Enterprise, UNCTAD
2012 SSE Global Dialogue in Rio di Janiero, Brazil

Sustainable Stock Exchanges 


The Sustainable Stock Exchanges (SSE) initiative is a peer-to-peer learning platform for exploring how exchanges (in collaboration with investors, regulators, and companies) can promote responsible investment for sustainable development.

Launched by UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon in New York City in 2009, the SSE is a UN initiative, co-organized by UNCTAD (Investment and Enterprise Division), the  UN Global Compact, the United Nations Environment Programmes Finance Initiative, and the Principles for Responsible Investment.

The SSE initiative invites exchanges globally to become a Partner Stock Exchange within the SSE by making a voluntary public commitment to promote improved environmental, social and governance (ESG) disclosure and performance among listed companies. In addition, the SSE welcomes participation from securities regulators, investors, companies and other key stakeholders within its Consultative Group.

The SSE's flagship event is its biennial Global Dialogues, it provides research and guidance material and it develops new work streams in response specific stakeholder requests.
